    I am curious if anyone has any experience w/ "quick smoking" meat? Many very succesful BBQ joint use this method. I have heard that this entails smoking to approx. 160*, covering w/ juice in the pan and cranking the heat up to 300*-350* for the remainder of the time. From what I hear, the Q turns out just as good as low and slow. I know for most of us the fun is in the smoke. I was just thinking from the commercial side if you were in a time crunch this would be helpful.

    Any thoughts??

    I can't vouch for it since I'm new and still learning, but there's a recipe for fast smoking on http://www.kickassbbq.com/. The author of this site has free recipes, pictures and is a member here. That's how I found the site. The pictures he posted look really good.

    Ya, Kickass is on alot of forum's, he has a great site with some great recipe's and swear's by his speed cooking!
    While the long process of low n slow is what i love about Bbq, it is nice to be able to crank out some good Bbq without losing any of the flavor and texture from a slow cook!
    I have used these technique's with great success!

    Low and slow works best for me, but everyone has "their" way and usually is great.

    I have noticed that if your heat is a bit higher than 225, take your brisket and butts to a higher temp(ie, usually pull at 200, then take to 205-210).

    There is also too low and too slow, i've had those and the results are not as good as "just right".

    You gotta go w/the flow and have a plan for either too fast or too slow. I don't know my plan, I just do what I think is best.........unless I'm tired, then I say @#$%^&*, pull it and I'm done!!! [​IMG][​IMG]

    The best way is YOUR way, as long as the family likes it who cares.
